Pariah’s Lament

“It’s often the forgetten who possess the power to change the world.”

When an attempt is made on the life of Ashara, Keeper of Yurr, his young, hapless advisor Edvar must uncover and stop those behind it. With enemies in the capital city and the belligerent Tesh, Keeper of neighboring kingdom Karrabar stirring trouble in the Borderlands, can Edvar hold together Ashara’s brittle reign?

The troubles ripple throughout Yurr, affecting an ancient race of people known as the Amast, who in their time of utmost need, turn to pariah Isy for salvation. Rejected by society, kith and kin, can Isy guide the Amast to safety during the greatest turmoil Yurr has known since the War of the Damned?


Readers of Joe Abercrombie and George RR Martin will appreciate the gritty realism of Richie Billing’s writing, yet at times it possesses a light-hearted and humorous touch akin to the works of James Barclay and Nicholas Eames. 

And for those who adore the heroes and character-driven plots of Brandon Sanderson and Patrick Rothfuss, you’ll find protagonists that will whisk you away on an epic journey of discovery, intrigue, friendship and love.

“Billing shrewdly delves into the very relatable, human need to actualize and belong.” Mark Brooks, Author

“Billing has a knack for writing descriptions that can make readers feel like they’re walking in the character’s shoes.” Anna Civolani, Editor

Pariah’s Lament will be published by Of Metal and Magic Publishing on 17.03.2021
